Nail Art Tutorial: Polka Dot Bow

Gelish Bow Polka Dots

Follow these steps for a 3-D bow nail using long-lasting Gelish gel polish!

Step 1: Before beginning make sure to complete the proper nail preparation. Using a Maestro Brush and Hephaetus from the Olympus Colored Powder Kit, place a bead shaped like a water droplet onto the nail at a diagonal angle. Press into the top of the shape to show the fold of the bow. Repeat on the opposite, leaving a small space between the two folds.

Step 2: With your brush place a small dot of Hephaestus in between the 2 folds of the bow shape.

Step 5: Remove the inhibition layer with Nail Surface Cleanse and a Wipe It Off lint free wipe. Massage Nourish Cuticle Oil into the skin surrounding the nail plate.
